I would definitely go for the SSD.
8GB RAM is fine for most purposes in InDesign, unless you're creating massive graphic-heavy publications.
Those are not mutually exclusive.
I would recommend Win 10 Pro 64 bit with 16GB of RAM, an SSD and a dedicated graphics card.
Sure, but your recommendation will undoubtedly cost a lot more, and we're unfortunately on a tight budget. With about £900 to spend, these are the closest I'm getting at that price, ie, it's one or the other, and I'd like to know what InDesign will benefit most from: SSD, Graphics Card, or more RAM.
Thanks for your guidance.
The SSD is really only going to be a factor for launching the application. You definitely want as much RAM as possible.
This of course assumes a 64 bit version of Windows.
Based on my experience here at Adobe and with personal work, for strictly InDesign work, forget the GPU/dedicated graphics card and go for SSD and 16GB RAM.
(The dedicated graphics card with GPU provides noticeable improvements primarily with Photoshop. Note that on newer systems, there is a built-in Intel graphics capability that does have a GPU, albeit not of the class of the Nvidia et.al. products!)
Terrific. Thanks very much for taking the time to reply.
